The crossover event was teased by Techland, the developer of Dying Light 2, on Twitter and on its official website. However, some details and images of the event were leaked online by dataminers and fans on the game’s Discord channel and subreddit. The leak revealed that the event will include a Rick Grimes outfit, Michonne’s katana, Negan’s knife, Negan’s bat Lucille, and a Walking Dead-themed paraglider. These items will likely be part of a premium bundle that players can purchase or earn through in-game events.
The Rick Grimes outfit is based on the main protagonist of The Walking Dead, who is played by Andrew Lincoln in the TV series. The outfit features his signature sheriff’s hat, jacket, shirt, pants, and boots. The Michonne’s katana is a weapon used by another fan-favorite character from the show, Michonne, who is played by Danai Gurira. The katana is a sharp and durable blade that can slice through zombies with ease. The Negan’s knife and bat Lucille are weapons used by Negan, one of the main antagonists of The Walking Dead, who is played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The knife is a hunting knife that Negan uses for close combat, while Lucille is a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire that he uses to intimidate and kill his enemies. The Walking Dead-themed paraglider is a device that players can use to glide through the air in Dying Light 2. The paraglider features the logo of The Walking Dead and some blood splatters.
The crossover event will also include some comic book covers and a memento for the player’s weapon, according to another leak. The comic book covers are based on the original source material of The Walking Dead, which is a comic book series created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The memento is a small item that players can attach to their weapon to customize it.
The crossover event is not the only collaboration that Dying Light 2 will have with other franchises. Another leak revealed that there will also be a Payday crossover, which has not been officially announced yet. Payday is a cooperative first-person shooter game series developed by Overkill Software and Starbreeze Studios, where players rob banks and other locations. The Payday crossover will likely include some masks, outfits, and weapons from the game.
Dying Light 2 is an open-world action-adventure game that takes place 15 years after the events of the first game. Players will control Aiden Caldwell, a new protagonist who has been infected by the zombie virus and has special abilities. The game feature’s a dynamic day-night cycle, where zombies are more active and dangerous at night, and a choices-and-consequences system, where players’ decisions will shape the world and its factions. The game will also have co-op multiplayer for up to four players.
Dying Light 2 is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
